National advocacy and research organization. The site provides general information about Down syndrome, parent and support group resources, the latest in research and medical, positive messaging, and information on Buddy Walks around the world.
Our mission is to ensure that every child born with Down syndrome has the opportunity to grow up in a loving family. The National Down Syndrome Adoption Network provides information to birth families who may be seeking alternatives to parenting as they prepare for the arrival of their child. Making an adoption plan for a child with Down syndrome is a loving choice and can be the right choice for some families. The NDSAN is also here to provide support to families who wish to adopt a child with Down syndrome.
